OKLAHOMA CITY - In honor of the 20-year anniversary of Suited for Success, Governor Mary Fallin will host a clothing drive at the Oklahoma Capitol on Tuesday, August 8, which will benefit Suited for Success. The event will be from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the governor’s large conference room, on the second floor of the Capitol.
Suited for Success is an Oklahoma nonprofit organization that provides professional clothing to low-income women actively seeking employment. The clothing drive will help fulfill the mission of “helping women achieve self-sufficiency.”
The community is encouraged to donate new or gently used professional women’s clothing, as well as shoes, handbags, unopened cosmetics, toiletries, scarves and jewelry. Suited for Success requests that all clothing donations be clean and on hangers. Donations of shoes, handbags and accessories may be in bags or small boxes.
In addition to wardrobe items, Suited for Success will also be accepting monetary donations. A $75 donation helps provide a deserving woman with one suit of clothing, including a pair of dress shoes.
“Our goal is to help women start a new chapter in their professional lives,” said Susan Walton, executive director of Suited for Success. “When women feel good about how they look and feel, they are empowered, self-confident, and ready to approach their career with enthusiasm.”
